The new Exynos 1080 processor has been announced officially by Samsung. The special thing associated with this new SoC is that it beats Qualcomm’s most powerful processor Snapdragon 865+ in terms of performance. The new Exynos 1080 processor is designed by Samsung with a 5nm manufacturing process. It uses the Cortex-A78 processor core and the Mali-G78 GPU.
The next generation of smartphones will feature the new 5nm chips, which include Apple A14, Snapdragon 875, Kirin 9000, and even Exynos. Samsung Semiconductor China Research Institute director Dr. Pan Xuebao revealed in an interview that the SoC scored over 650,000 points on the AnTuTu benchmark, which is higher than the scores achieved by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 and Snapdragon 865+.
The new Chipset is built on a 5nm process that is speculated to be the same 5nm LPE process as the Snapdragon 875, which should offer better energy efficiency. The new SoC also has the new ARM Cortex-A78 CPU architecture along with the new Mali-G78 GPU. According to ARM’s official data, the A78 offers a 20 percent bump in CPU performance over the last-gen A77, while the G78 offers a 25 percent higher performance when compared to the older G77 architecture. A reliable tipster (Ice Universe) suggests the new chip will first debut on Vivo X60 smartphone later this year.
